Beware v2 #10 - Frank Frazetta cover

Beware v2 #10 golden age horror comic book cover art by Frank Frazetta
Frank Frazetta
Beware v2 #10, 1954 - Frank Frazetta's pre-code horror cover is a standout, even during a comics era replete with shocking and gory images. Note how the layout leads the eye from the masthead to the open grave below in a subtle "Z" pattern. Every muscle, sinew, and bone is meticulously delineated. Their shredded clothing seems to waft eerily in the evening breeze. This truly terrifying scene is fully detailed, from the stunted trees in the background to the scattered pebbles on the ground. Frazetta also includes common horrific metaphors, from the oversized moon to bats flitting about. Sid Check's inks steadily enhance the pencils without upstaging them. Other artists in this issue include Jay Disbrow. This is 1 of 1 Beware issues with Frazetta art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Frazetta or Beware issues.
